. it is a great product. tina brown is one of the legends of the industry right now and if anybody can figure out how to do this transition from the print advertising model to a tablet, internet, online model, it is going to be tina brown. she has had one of the greatest careers you can ask for in journalism and i trust her leadership as she looks to steer the next phase. host: how often do you post? guest: usually twice, three times a week, sometimes more. i have a lot of flexibility. i have a great editor who worked with me sometimes. we go back and forth. it is pretty good. they generally have asked me -- i do not have to deal with commodity news unless it is a huge breaking story. the idea that they want me to get scoops and unique angles. that can be at times a real challenge but it is also a very rewarding approached. host: here is arlington on are democrats' line. caller: hello. i believe in all honesty. i am a democrat. the four people killed is hurting the bed and is disgraceful as a democrat. i see no end to this in washington. maybe there is no come back from it. i want to know what yo
. here's a look from genevieve shaw brown. she hit the mat with some of these kids. >> reporter: some say yoga is the fastest growing sport in the nation, with an estimated 20 million people practicing regularly. the latest trend is an ever growing number are pint-sized. there are yoga classes for infants up to teenagers. there are even classes for toddlers like my daughter. >> you're still going to see the foundations of yoga, so there's going to be an awareness of movement and anatomy and breath. there's such a tremendous amount of creativity and there's inner play between the children and teacher. >> reporter: i'm here with a group of 6 to 9-year-olds who are showing me a little bit what a kid's yoga class is like. >> one leg comes up, the other. >> it's going to be a little sillier, more playful. kids are stressed. with social pressures and pressures in school. >> it clears your mind of things that really bothers you. >> i don't have to worry about all my problems. >> reporter: parents should look for a registered children's yoga instructor. a good start is the yoga alliance website.
. do you agree with this? i think scott brown is smiling this morning? i think a race against ed markey well-known in washington, respected here and has taken strong positions on climate change and other issues. he's not a household name in massachusetts. scott brown is. there's a totally different electorate in this special election. scott brown likes this match upup. mike, would you call him the favorite, or does that go too far? >> i think he'll have multiple candidates in that field because several other members of the congress might rung because they risk nothing. they don't risk the congressional seats. ed mackey malden has been there are a long time. but i think scott brown has a small smile on his face. thanks very much. happy weekend. brian, you going to do sports? >> i'm going to do sports. i like how you say markey. >> he always introduces him from massachusetts. >> coming up, the jets find out that greg mcelroy will back up once again. so is it tebow time in noshz? >> let me take a guess. >> first off, you're not going to believe this one. i'm going to start mark sanchez. >>
randolph, silverman, and brown where they have essentially said, thanks a lot of a supreme court, for dumping this burden on us. you said that liberty and security, it's easy to balance these things. now, go forth to do it. we will give you any of the underlying standards. we are sure you can work it out as you go along. you can see why they are little bit upset about that. one of the biggest surprises to me actually of this presence of restoration is how closely the obama of lustration is skewed to the bush of the illustrations cover terrorism policies. i think a lot of that dynamic is what goes on, you come in and assume an office and seven realized that the responsibility of keeping the american people live and say it is now on your shoulders. and it's very easy when you're sitting back to armchair quarterback the decisions of a previous set restoration here and there, but when you're sitting in the chair and realizing you are responsible and that is what these judges are essentially saying. thank you for making as is possible for having to go in and in detail figure out and e
with us. he spoke at the brown chapel ame church with mrs. king to a group of high school students. and seven days later, he was assassinated. amy goodman: on february 21st, 1965, he was gunned down. rep. john lewis: i will never forget it, because february 21st is my birthday. and i was in a car on my way from southwest georgia. amy goodman: you were 25 years old. rep. john lewis: twenty-five. and i was going from southwest georgia through atlanta back to selma, when we heard that he had been shot. i came to new york, attended the service for him. amy goodman: what is your assessment of the significance of malcolm x? rep. john lewis: i think malcolm played a major role in helping to educate, inform and dramatize the need for mass movement. people read about him. many of the young people, black and white, read his story. many did not agree necessarily with his techniques or his tactic. but if malcolm had lived, i am convinced that he would have been part of the southern nonviolent wing of the civil rights movement. amy goodman: and his relationship with dr. king? what did dr. king
have to go to harold brown under carter and was a multilateralist, looked to use the pentagon as a place to negotiate arms reduction treaties. it was a different type of defense strategy, it was, by the way, controversial at the time. but the point to hagel, joy, is we're talking about someone who objectionable comments aside or not, someone who would be a change agent, and why won't the president fight for that? >> his only objectionable comment was his comment on the gay community. >> how long ago? >> bill clinton signed, you know -- >> clinton, who progressives like. >> it was a very different time in gay rights. >> and the issue on israel, what did he say, he's not a senator from israel? have we gotten to the point you can't say that? he's a republican, we're not going to agree with everything he says. >> he was against sanctions in iran. there's a real difference in iran policy, but look again, it's a symbolic fight between neoconservatives and people who hate neoconservatives and they are itching to fight each other and he's become the fight. obama made the decision, oba

brown, and oh, there is going to be a call to bring congress back in. it was amazing to see the market on that -- >> scott brown bottom, as a lot of people were calling it. you were down more than 51. >> and it is amazing to see how our fortunes are being tied the at this point to what is going on in d.c. and every minor tweet or post or headline or what not, at the end of the day, it was four straight losing sessions for the dow, nasdaq, as well as the s&p 500. certainly something we have to watch. in the meantime, the clock is not only ticking for the fiscal cliff, but time is running out to avoid a strike at ports in massachusetts and texas, that could affect containers to and from the u.s. from reaching their destination. talks are taking place in secrecy between the international long shoresman association and the u.s. maritime alliance in an effort to keep 14,000 longshoreman from walking off the job. the national association of manufacturers puts the cost of a potential strike at $1 billion a day. and this is not just finished goods, obviously, but also raw materials and parts c
the cliff. i'm. patti ann: i'm patti ann browne. they will try to avoid the across the board tax hikes for 90% of the american households and deep spending cuts. so far little to no progguess has been reported. gregg: chief white house correspondent ed henry is in the white us. ed, what do we expect out the meeting if any at all? our expectations are a little bit low. >> reporter: you're exactly right, gregg, expectations have to be low. lawmakers of both parties in conjunction with the president have missed one deadline after another. we have been saying for a couple weeks they had to get moving get this completed before christmas in order to give the house and senate time to debate and end up voting on whatever package they come up with. now that we're days away from actually going off the fiscal cliff where these automatic massive spending cuts as well as large tax increases got into effect you have to have low expectations. it appears the white house is very confident in waiting for the republicans to make the next move. they keep saying inside the white house this is up to the rep

and brown before they got into power with the labor party. and the deal, the first one came along at a time when the idea of portraying very prominent public figures certainly within the realm of politics nobody did that unless it was sketch shows, comedy that kind of thing. the idea of actually depicting presidents, the idea of doing that is you can't take it seriously, that kind of thing. so the idea that peter morgan who is a well respected writer but hadn't found his voice up to that point. it wasn't until he wrote "the deal" he found his groove. having him on board and having proper producers behind it gave it a seriousness and a weight that nothing had had before that was looking at these sort of people. so "the deal" was on tv. i was offered the part and no one knew what to expect. everyone expected it to fail and not work. and i think through a combination of factors, the tone was right and it was acceptable and suddenly once the tone was acceptable and people were able to accept watching a drama which includes tony blair in bed. as soon as you take that seriously it opens an entire

when he came in, 60 votes in the senate, which , amount-- senator brown had won in massachusetts. but he started out with 60 and then it went down to 59 when senator kennedy and sadly died. i really admired senator kennedy as much as any man who ever served in the senate, even though we did not agree. mr. reagan had to deal with tip o'neill. that was one of the great events in washington politics because you had two extraordinarily capable politician opposing points of view. mr. reagan was poorly matched. mr. obama had nancy pelosi as speaker of the house. but hardly the same thing. host: from massachusetts on the line, democrat. caller: good morning. i have a comment and question. i am trying to find out, the situation you're in right now, why is everybody fighting about what we should do? i am gmt and i am broke every day. i'm down here with people that paid taxes and work hard every day. -- i am an emt. people don't understand that would ever happens with the fiscal cliff, people down here will survive. the republicans, this will definitely affect them in the future. i talked

. a couple main thoughts on this. brown had a very interesting article, the title was just because mohammed morsi is paranoid doesn't mean he doesn't have real enemies. so yes the brotherhood is very paranoid. but there were certain elements of the deep state primarily the judiciary that were out to really damage the brotherhood's standing in society. and there is evidence for that and that is what already happened the dissolution of parliament. and i think that to me was one of the worst moments and one of the most dangerous of the transition because it fed into the brotherhood's narrative that the world will not let them win in elections and govern. the memory of aljeera shapes everything that they do. and we can disagree whether or not these fears are legitimate. but that's the way they see the world around them. my hope is that if they feel more secure, if some of those threats can be removed the judiciary plays a less politicized role, a more independent role then maybe they'll be able to take a step back. i don't know. we'll have to wait and see. but i think that would be the hope. no
: and brown bag it a little bit. i know my buddy was saying, i spend $10 a day picking up a coffee for myself and my wife. it's like 60 bucks a month. >> right. of that $10, $7, according to the "wall street journal," goes to rent and labor costs for the restaurants. it's no brainer. cut back on the restaurant bill. you can actually save money and do the math, reinvest it over the 20, 30 years you have ideally for an average worker now. that could add up to a mighty sum to put toward retirement. >> clayton: and almost pretend you're buying it by reinvesting it. taking that money and don't even pay attention to it. put it right into a savings account. >> yeah, buy stocks in it. >> clayton: finally, you talk about coming back on the -- cutting back on the cable and tv and phone. people think they need these extra digital phone services at home and might not. >> smart phone obviously -- this is your area, very competitive environment now for the smart phones, the google, samsung. these guys want to negotiate with you. the carriers in particular. there are a lot of consumers. so you could get a d
